Report: Rams' Bulger thinking retirement

From Post-Dispatch.com:

With the offseason starting at Rams Park, let the roster-shaping begin.

Before the Rams get to the draft or free agency, they must make decisions on their current roster. Who to keep, who to re-sign, who figures into the plan for 2010 and beyond. And who doesn't.

It all starts with the quarterback position, particularly quarterback Marc Bulger. When Bulger went down with a season-ending fractured shin bone in late November, it seemed likely that he had played his last game in St. Louis.

But there's a chance that decision may not be in the hands of the Rams' front office and coaching staff. Multiple sources have told the Post-Dispatch that Bulger is considering retiring.

It's not unusual for veteran players to have such feelings after a tough season, only to change their minds after a few weeks or months away. (See: Brett Favre.) And a league source told the Post-Dispatch that Bulger has spoken informally with a friend on at least one other NFL team about the possibility of playing there.

But Bulger has had three tough seasons in a row in terms of injuries, level of play, supporting cast and organizational upheaval. It's possible he may just want to get on with life after football.

Bulger turns 33 before the start of training camp, has been in the league for a decade and has plenty of interests outside of football. He could not be reached to comment Wednesday.
